Of course, whichever path you take for this Lunar New Year event entirely depends on your preference in the way you way. Do you prioritise farming Stardust, catching more Pokemon quickly, or hatching Eggs?

Nevertheless, the factually best Pokemon GO Lucky Wishes Timed Research path is the Hatching Eggs Path

The Hatching Eggs Path is best because not only has the Pokemon GO site confirmed that Lunar New Year event made rarer Pokemon available to hatch in 7KM Eggs; Chingling, Riolu, Darumaka, Galarian Darumaka, and Scraggy; but speedily hatching more Eggs with the 0.5 x distance bonus with also net you with more Stardust anyway. 

So, the Hatching Eggs Path will serve you double the bonuses of two paths in one.
